Kapnick Distinguished Writer in Residence/Visiting Associate Professor of Creative Writing

The Creative Writing Program in the Department of English at the University of Virginia invites applications for the Kapnick Distinguished Writer in Residence, a one-year visiting Associate Professor position (with the possibility of renewing for a second year). We seek a writer with an exceptional background in contemporary prose (fiction and creative nonfiction) and national recognition for their work. At least two published books from major presses and additional publications—together representing more than one genre—are required, as are university-level teaching experience and an MFA. The successful appointee will teach a two/two load of workshops and craft seminars for graduate and undergraduate students; take part in departmental service; and make several public presentations. The Program will select a candidate who can contribute, through their publications, teaching, public presentations, and service, to the diversity and excellence of a well-established literary community.
